You have only just begun............the first part is learning about yourself. You have to really stick with this CBT therapy. No body said it would be easy but anything worth having is not easy. I know if you keep it up and get to the part where you learn how to change the way you think you will start noticing that you are able to deal with your anxiety.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations,and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.
I have faith in you so please do not give up on this great program.
just realised my first post sounds like i'm not impressed with it. So, ironically, i guess that's all what it's about-Moodgym-I'm delighted to have found it-and it was a link from here-
I will be continueing with it and i've also started my counselling too.
Thanks for all the help and support, this site has made such a difference to me in the last few weeks
We are here for you and anything we can do to help you is a good thing IMHO. When I first started working the online CBT I thought I was in the wrong place too as the questions seemed redundant and the site seemed aimed at college level young adults.
I stuck with it and sometimes I overlooked questions that did not fit my situation but the whole program I found to be very helpful.
Glad you are going to therapy too.
Here is the link for the Mood GYM

You must then sign on as a new person to start the course. The first part is a lot of question and self analysis. Don't give up, keep going and make it fit you. Don't worry that it may sound like you must be a single student to be using it. It is truly very helpful.
It does take practice.
Let me know if you continue to have problems finding it.
